Overview

Villa Dunya is located on the Kas peninsula just outside the picturesque town of Kas, with its own beach platforms and spectacular sea views from every room. It has its own private swimming pool (heated) and shares the garden (3500 m2) and the beach with 4 other villas. At this villa the sea is only one minute away: a few steps through the garden lead you to the sea and beach platforms.

This seafront villa offers 155 square meters of indoor living space as well as plenty of partly shaded space on the outside terrace. Even at full occupation the considerable space ensures for guests to escape in peace and quiet, making it ideal for families, friends traveling together, and those simply wishing to relax in comfort to enjoy those stunning views.

The Living Room is spacious with an open fire place, a dining area and open plan kitchen. There are 4 double, twin or triple bedrooms with en suite bath rooms, securing privacy for everyone. One of the rooms is a garden retreat (separate entrance).

The villa is air-conditioned throughout, has a Jacuzzi. a fully equipped kitchen for self catering, a washing machine, dish washer, satellite TV, DVD player and a stereo CD player. Guests can make unlimited use of the wireless internet; just bring your (Wi-Fi) laptop. The villa is next door to Club Barbarossa where the villa guests are allowed to have special price breakfast for 5 pounds and lunch/dinner for 10 pounds per person (children under at half prices).

The garden, the pool and your villa is looked after daily by the Club Barbarossa staff. You can call the reception anytime for any food, beverage or information items. You are also entitled to use the Club's table tennis, billiard and canoes free of charge (up to two hours per day). You can also get advice on tours and sights of Kas from the Barbarossa front office.


The Kas Peninsula
Villa Dunya is located on the Bay side of Kas Peninsula (Cukurbag Yarimada in Turkish). This side of the Kas Peninsula is sheltered: less windy and the sea is perfect for swimming, also early and late in the season. It is a very peaceful location, which is popular by people who like to enjoy their holiday without the street noises, noisy bars and mosques and still be only a 10 minute dolmus ride from the town centre.

The picturesque harbour town of Kas
The picturesque harbour town Kas (Antiphellos in the Greek era) is renowned for its natural charm at the Turkey Rivera. It has an attractive harbour front along which tea gardens, cafes and restaurants are to be found in abundance.
Leading away from the harbour is a warren of winding cobbled streets full of colorful shops offering all manner of carpets, ceramics, arts and crafts. Kas has remained relatively unspoiled since, until recent times, it was only possible to reach there by sea or on horseback.

Tourism in Kas
Tourism in Kas is international and tends to be of the more elite kind. The town is especially popular with the English, the Germans, the Scandinavians, the French, the Belgians and the Dutch, who come here in search of privacy, peace and quiet, comfort, nature, culture, active pursuits and fine cuisine. There is no mass tourism in Kas - no sprawling (all-inclusive) resorts or apartment complexes with organized entertainment. Many hikers pass through Kas as they walk The Lycian Way (a 509 km way-marked footpath around the coast from Fethiye to Antalya). The Lycian coast - and Kas especially - is famous for its beauty. Kas is recommended in various travel guides and is a stop over for the cruises in traditional wooden Gulets: the Blue Voyages.

Beaches
Kas does not have a sandy beach, but it does have a few pebble beaches and several sun terraces right on the waterfront, which often have a bar. The fabulous sandy beaches of Kaputas (15 km) and Patara (35 km) are easy to get to by minibus and/or boat. Similarly, a fifteen-minute boat trip will take you to Limanagzi - a beautiful beach with a very relaxed atmosphere on the opposite side of the bay. On the peninsula people swim in the sea near the sun terraces of the hotels. Villa Dunya has its own shared beach platforms.

Sights
On the outskirts of Kas there is a small and reasonably well-preserved Hellenistic amphitheatre. From the highest row of seat you have a fabulous view of the sea. On the hill between the theatre and the market there are a few free-standing Lycian tombs. On the other side of the street from the theatre, there is the barely recognizable ruin of an ancient temple. In the hills immediately behind Kas there are a large number of Lycian rock graves that date back to the fourth century BC. You can see these graves from the town centre, and during the high season they are lit up on some evenings.

Kas is centrally situated in relation to many interesting antiquities, cultural attractions and areas of natural beauty, which makes it an ideal base camp for day trips and excursions. The most popular day trips and excursions are mentioned below. It is definitely worth going on a boat trip to the ancient Lycian city of Kekova, the remains of which are mostly submerged. You can go swimming and snorkelling during the trip. Lunch is usually included and is consumed in one of the little restaurants on the waterfront in Kekova. After lunch you have time to go and see the castle of Kekova and the Lycian graves. You can also go on a boat trip to one of the many little islands just off the coast. If you hire a car, you can visit the ruins of the ancient city of Myra, the St Nicholas basilica at Demre, the waterfall between Kas and Kalkan and the stunning Saklikent Gorge all on the same day. Try to be at the gorge around lunch time if you can, so you can lunch on the floating platforms on the river. Lovers of antiquity should also make a point of visiting the highly recommended ruins of Tlos along the way. A trip to Xanthos, which is inland from Kalkan, is also definitely worth doing.

The villa is in an excellent location with stunning views. All mod cons catered for and very comfortable. Only 4 of us stayed here and felt that 6 would have been comfortable but 8 may have been a bit cosy - the fourth bedroom being down some steps and underneath the pool area so slightly cut off from the house. All in all though an excellent villa, easy to find and catered for all our needs. Would definately recommend it to friends.

We stayed a week in Dunya and a week in Gunes and we have to say we had a very enjoyable stay. The villas were very well equipped had a view to die for and were well designed. The caretaker was very helpful, especially in bringing bread each morning. A few minor negatives I have to mention though...if you are after privacy you will be slightly dissapointed as the villas were very close to a hotel and people staying at other villas walked close to your pool area. The electricity, water and internet were a little unreliable, although I think this is common on the peninsula. Kas town is not within walking distance (about 2 miles away) but the bus (Dolmus) was great. All things considered we had a marvellous time. We all loved the town! best sunny holiday town we have visited, no noisy bars full of obese brits watching sky sports. Just lots of quaint restaurants (especially Evy), bars and shops with very friendly staff.

Lovely villa great facilities easy to get to town from stunning views wonderful pool lushious gardens overall finished to a very high standard. The only ''negative'' was the 4th bedroom - you had to access it from outside and at this stage not able to use due to a damp musk smell in the room (it is under the pool) However the owners are aware of this and are rectifying this issue and whilst there they started to solve this. Very friendly caretaker who even brings you bread in the morning if you ask him kindly - nothing was to much trouble. The villa is next to a hotel and although we were there in low season - I am not sure if the noise from the hotel would spoil the tranquility in high season. Kas itself is a lovely artistic fishing village with some real caracters - very laid back and safe - never locked the car whilst there.. Will most certainly be back and have already recommended to friends and family.

The property is in a great location, with fantastic views from every room, it was nice to receive the welcome pack, and the caretaker was very helpfull, bringing fresh bread every day. We enjoyed the villa so much we did not tour around much, however the town of Kas was very pretty and had everything from boat trips to the nearby Greek Island and many other places. to arranging paragliding, and if you explore the back streets you will find some great places to eat. We had a super holiday and hope to return soon, we will recommend friends and family.

Lovely villa in a wonderful place. we loved it... However the villa was a little too cold, specially after 5-6 pm. During night it became much colder and for us, who are not used to airconditions, it was sometimes difficult to sleep. It was also impossible to go around on the floor without shoes, but this was not a problem :-) We were at Kas quite early of the year, and we could hear peopled working on constructions around us. Thus it was not everydag. In overall, we enjoyed our holiday both in the villa and at the small village, Kas, which was one of the most charming villages we visited between Fethiey and Alanya. I should also add that the caretaker was very kind and helpful.

we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at villa dunya, could have done with a salad bowl and server though - but we made do with the large saucepan! Also a large ovenproof dish would have been useful but other than that the house was very well equiped.

We had a great holiday in Kas. The villa was very comfortable and clean and had fantastic sea views. The swimming pool was brilliant . We were very well looked after by the helpful and friendly caretakers. The owners paid a great attention to details, including welcome hamper and daily deliveries of freshly baked bread. We will definitely come back and will recommend it to all our friends.

Fantastic villa in a great location. The house itself is extremely well decorated, and has everything one could need and more, for an easy and relaxing holiday. Outside the gardens are great for children to explore, and the private jetty is a real bonus. Kas itself is very picturesque and is a good base from which to venture out to see some of the amazing scenery and history that Turkey has to offer. However, should you choose to stay closer to the villa, the locals are incredibly friendly. There are also so many great places to eat and just hang out. What could have been a tough holiday ( alone with three small children) ended up being a fun and relaxing experience. We will go back for sure.

What a perfect holiday we had! Villa Dunya (earth in Turkish) is a brand new villa with a high standard of finishing and tastefully decorated. Feels like a home rather than a holiday house: every detail is carefully chosen. Perfectly close to the sea with it’s own private beach and quiet waters. Everywhere in the villa you can enjoy a real stunning view over the bay. Lovely Kas has many things to offer; Stunning nature, relaxed atmosphere, lovely restaurants, and nightlife and you can make wonderful walks and enjoy the scenery on the well known “Lycian Way”. For us Dunya is the perfect place to stay. We can recommend it to everybody and we will certainly be back next year.

About the owner
The lovely villas Sema, Dunya, Gunes and Ates have been recently acquired by the Club Barbarossa's parent company (October 2010). A great deal of effort has already been spent on the properties to ensure that the guests’ wishes in the reviews were taken into account. Now the villas have plenty of sunbathing decks by the sea, phone in each room directly linking to a 24/7 reception, new upholstery and fixtures in the rooms. The villas have also been painted and the pools serviced to ensure a very comfortable stay for our guests. The villas were already great property but the availability of 24/7 of our staff and the free access to the Club facilities next door will definitively improve the guests’ perception of our villas. Halil Gunay is the manager of the Club Barbarossa Hotel and Villas and he will be at the properties almost every day of the year. Prof. Dr. Sevki Erdogan is the force behind the Club Barbarossa and he will be very happy to hear from you during and after your stay. We expect to see many return guests to our villas and we aim to provide a better setting each year our guests return.
